11:05 - 11:30 "Organic Thin Film Transistors for Flexible Electronics"
- Recently, demanding issues evolved from flat panel displays (FPDs) system are concerned with development of high-performance and low cost thin-film transistors (TFTs) backplanes on desired substrates by easy-to-process yet highly integrated system.
- In particular, even though active-matrix display with printable, novel semiconductors is attractive among FPDs, it is not realized because new organic semiconductors comparable to conventional a-Si TFT technologies are not developed.
- For the production of well-defined and very uniform printed OTFT arrays, we have molecularly designed ambient processable functionalized conjugated copolymers with liquid-crystalline nature, enabling the high-performance OTFTs.
- Our approaches enable the realization of polymer based flexible color-display, and offer a promising solution for the advance of future display.
